Qualification Summary

Each National Olympic Committee can enter a maximum of 4 athletes (2 men and 2 women). As hosts, Japan will be given 2 quotas (1 man and 1 woman) should they not qualify normally while 4 quotas (2 men and 2 women) will be decided by the Tripartite Commission. The remaining quotas will be decided through various events and rankings, specifically, the 2019 World Cup Final, the 2019 continental championships, the 2019 and 2021 World Championships and the Olympic World Ranking List published on June 14th 2021. Should a nation qualify more than two athletes in an event they will be allowed to choose which quotas to use while the others will be reallocated.
